Dining - Peppers Bluewater Resort, Lake Tekapo

The resort's onsite Rakinui Restaurant has been awarded the 2013 New Zealand Beef and Lamb Excellence Award for its respectful use of unique, locally sourced Beef and Lamb products.

The restaurant is synonymous for showcasing the Mackenzie Country’s finest produce, and paying homage to those who work so hard to provide it. From the free-range pork from Havoc Pork in Waimate, to the venison farmed at neighbours Balmoral Estate, the infamous High Country Salmon and organic, free-range eggs from nearby Fairlie – Rakinui captures the essence of this dynamic farm land. The menu itself highlights modern New Zealand cuisine with a contemporary twist. To complement the menu, our beverage list celebrates a broad range of NZ’s sensational regional wines.

Enjoy the spectacular views of Lake Tekapo in a relaxed and casual dining setting.
